breaking up ] and temperatures, once the fog breaks up, close to what we had yesterday. 60s. mid70s for some. morgan hill, 78. santa rosa. upper 70s or low 80s well inland. northbound 280, right near ray street, a car, with a van, was blazing away in the two right lanes. the person did get out. but apparently suffered some minor burns as a result of being too close to the car fire. police and fire, along with paramedics are on the scene. and traffic is slowing down here on 280, coming up to downtown san jose. you need to give yourself extra time. southbound 101 on the golden gate bridge looks good. now, let's go back to the desk. topping our news this morning. we are following a story about san francisco, looking for suspects near union square. there was a deadly shooting. one woman was killed. a man and a woman were injured.

6:04 am
in fast food kids meals. around a new ordinance that goes into effect today, if it contains more than 450 calories and more than 30% fat, it won't get the toy. one of the most confusing thing for parents may be figuring out which restaurants are affected, since there are only a handful of fast food places in the unincorporated county. a spokesman for mcdonald's says he doesn't believe any mcdonalds will be affected. this ordinance was imposed by supervisor board president ken yeager. it passed in may. and he says santa clara county is the first in the nation to pass a ban like this. he says one in four children in the county are obese. and the goal is to set an example so that other cities and counties can pass similar
6:05 am
measures. coming up later on, we are expecting to talk with supervisor yeager. we're also trying to track down a list of all of the fast food restaurants in the unincorporated parts of santa clara county, that will no longer be serving toys with some of their kids meals. reporting live, allie rasmus. ktvu news. the woman who says mark herd harassed her, now says she is surprised and saddened that herd has resigned from the company. she said she met herd when she was working for the marketing department. she also said she is a part- time actress and said she and herd have settled their affairs privately. she also said she did not have an affair. the investigators said there was nothing to support her harassment claim. but they found instances where
6:06 am
herd submitted false reports for meals and travel. including one time that he got paid for work that didn't serve as legitimate business expenses. herd says he relied on his assistants to file the claims and never meant to submit false claims. there are charges against 42-year-old christine shreve- hubs, a married mother of three, allegedly allowed boys to fire pellet guns out of her car. 67 counts of abuse have been lodged against hubs. investigators say it has been going on for two years. police say hubs is a long-time friend of the family. >> it's very difficult. these family members are known in town. she's known in town. and as best as we can, we're preparing the children when they do go back to school. >> reporter: no one was hurt in the pellet gun incidents. but bail for hubs is set at more than $4 million.
6:07 am
time now, 6:06. san francisco will be more bike friendly. the work starts today to double the number of bike lanes in the city. ktv u's paul chambers joins us live now. he knows all about that. >> good morning, dave. and if you like to ride your bike, you'll have a lot more room here in the city. the first lanes will be down behind me. and as the city of san francisco more than doubles its bike lane mileage. there will be a lot of room here in san francisco. because on friday, a superior court judge lifted a 40-year- old injunction, which blocked the city from lifting the ban. the injunction came about in 2006 when a lawsuit was brought against san francisco, on the grounds that the city leaders did not provide a sufficient enough environmental study. but that's all over now. and when it's all said and done, bicyclists will be able to ride on 34 new miles of lanes. but doing this will mean a loss
6:08 am
of curb side and parking in some areas. one man we talked to this morning said make figure the city more bike-friendly will serve multiple purposes. >> tough times. people want to save money. and maybe get a little exercise in. so makes it more sensible. >> the mayor will be on hand today, when the first stripe is laid down. this is a long awaited improvement. according to the coalition, who says psycheling -- cycling has increased. this morning, we will talk to bike lift -- bicycle lifts and motorists. i'm paul chambers, ktvu, channel 2 news. 6:08 is the time. sal has been checking 280, san jose, that car fire. how is it going, sal? >> that's right. it's messing up traffic. even though the car fire has been put out.
6:09 am
280 at ray street, which is north of here, about maybe a mile. and traffic is quickly backing up here on 280. as you drive up to downtown san jose. i would say, if you can -- it's early enough where you can use an alternate route, maybe stevens creek or something else before you get on downtown san jose freeways. or use 101 to 880 and getom that way. get on that way. right now, it's not a good way to go, 280. westbound 84, looks good, getting up to the tunnel. and no major problems. and this morning's drive at the bay bridge toll plaza is light. and checking the old twitter f. you know of any traffic issues, muni, bart. send me a tweet. sal, underscore, cast ned a. >> and you is k send me one, too. sp weather. people are saying, low

6:32 am
not the intended targets. now, hours after that shooting, south of market, there was more violence, just before 2:00 in the morning, two young women suffered gunshot wounds, after leaving the 1015 nightclub. according to the 1015 security manager, the girls had left the club and were walking on columbia avenue, between harrison and fulsom, when they got caught in the crossfire of two men arguing. their injuries are not believed to be serious. we spoke to 1015 security manager just a couple of minutes ago, go -- about the club's policies. >> about 20 people working security. i had 20.

6:34 am
and police are still looking for suspects and witnesses. a hayward family is upset this morning after an alameda county sheriff's deputy shot and killed their pit bull. that happened last night, on cherry way. the dog's owner tells us here at ktvu, that his mother was taking the dog out for a walk when it all happened. he said she opened the door and the dog ran out. shortly thereafter, the dog came upon a sheriff's deputy. >> got to about right around the corner. by the mailboxes. and he seen the officer. and i guess he started walking towards the officer. and my mom told the officer, he's not a mean dog. and he shot him. >> now, the owners claim that their dog, who had only three legs, was usually an indoor dog. he was shot seven times. the alameda county sheriff's department, which is confirming the shooting, says it will have more to say about this case later today. time now, 6:34, three bank robbers in cupertino are still

6:36 am
day crackdown tomorrow to catch distracted drivers. chp says those drivers are responsible for the highest number of crashes caused by drivers not paying attention. seeing someone weaving in and out of a lane. there's a couple of possibilities. are they falling asleep? are they under the influence of alcohol or drugs? as you get closer, you notice they are either texting or talking on the phone. >> chp says in the last two years, more than 1200 crashes statewide have involved cell phones. those crashes killed 16 people and injured another 850. a second statewide crackdown will take place on august 18th. time now, 6:36. cyclists have a reason to celebrate this morning. work begins to double the number of bike lanes in san francisco. ktv u's paul chambers has more. >> reporter: cyclists have things to celebrate. motorists, on the other hand, not so much. because they're losing roadways
6:37 am
among other things, as the city prepares 30 bike lanes, miles of bike lanes here in san francisco. a superior court judge lifted a 4-year-old injunction, which blocked the city from moving forward with its plan for dozens of new bike lanes. the injunction came about in 2006, when a lawsuit was brought against san francisco, on the grounds city leaders didn't do a sufficient environmental study. now, with the injunction being lifted, the city is able to install three or four new bike lanes. one man is happy because he says it will make biking in the city much safer. >> i think safety should be number 1. and there are a lot of cyclists in san francisco that rely on their bike to get to work. and i'm one of them. and it is a little bit of a tradeoff. but i think it's worth it. >> and that tradeoff will be a loss of curb side parking and traffic lanes in some areas. some of the streets that will be affected are townsend, market, north point and ocean
6:38 am
avenue. according to san francisco bicycle coalition, says cycling has increased in the city, 53% since the injunction was put in place 53 years ago. the mayor is set to be in place when the first stripe is put in place here. we're not sure what all 34 miles will be added. but dave, pam, i say this, and i'm serious about this. i think we should get our bikes out, tool around the city and see exactly how safe it is. what do you guys think? >> i think that's a great idea. >> but we can't keep up with you, paul. >> i'll slow down. i'll slow down, i promise. >> i have a cool little beach cruiser. i'll join you out there. >> okay. time now, 6:38. sal, what is happening in contra costa county? >> we're starting with highway 24. and westbound traffic is doing okay. although it should get a little slower as you get to the tunnel. remember, they start drilling the new tunnel today. woo hoo.
6:39 am
a lot of people who drive highway 24, very excited about this. let's go out and take a look at the westbound bay bridge. that traffic is backed up to about the middle of the parking lot. and there are no major problems on northbound 101. although it's a little more clouded. i think some people are avoiding 280 because of an earlier problem at ray street. 280 looks good. >> here's steve. all right, sal. thank you. and big fog bank. look at this. fairfield is overcast. fairfield is overcast. and they have a west wind, west/southwest to 22 miles an hour. if they have low clouds, you know we're done. can't get that warm. very close to yesterday's highs. 70s inland, in areas that should be upper 80s and 90s. even vacaville has a southwest at 5. there's a lot of low clouds there. i just show that area because it's straight out to the delta. delta breeze has definitely established itself. and en low clouds make it to fairfield, travis air force
6:40 am
base, that's a cool push. cool air in place. locked in for a while. close to the coast in bailem. windy at times. and you get a difference in pressure grades. starting to get a little difference in temperatures. sunny, but only in the 60s and 70s. almost for everybody across the board. the cloud deck just has lifted up a couple thousand feet. helped along by a very strong low, up in the pacific northwest. that means areas that are far inland. like sacramento. struggle to get into the mid- 80s. right here. that's coming in. any time of year, except right now, we'd probably be saying, well, now, looks like rain. it might be strong enough to chew up this fog bank as we head towards tuesday and wednesday. but today, it's there in full force. very similar temperatures yesterday. i did bump san francisco up two because their low is going about two degrees warmer. 76 today. no change for oakland. san jose, 78. 76. santa rosa.
6:41 am
mount tamalpais is at 62. mid-50s, mill valley. sonoma, crockelt vallejo. 52, ukiah. sacramento, 56. and even they'll be around 85. not much. and maximum temperatures set on the coast in california. i think it was newport beach and oceanside, only hit 67 for a high yesterday. coolest highs ever recorded for the day. couple of lows, one in nevada. that triggered up thunderstorm activity around tata hoe of the- - tahoe yesterday. and that other low, right there, coming interest portland. a combination of those two, meaning no heat in sight. that's a cool pattern that has established itself. low overcast. breezy, drizzle. but leaves behind some rather cool and way below-average highs. slightly cooler toward the end of the week.
6:42 am
low clouds, fog. 70s for many. 60s for others. close to the beaches. and it doesn't look like we're going to warm up any time soon. although near the end of the week, maybe a little bit. >> thank you, steve. 6:41 is the time now. apple says one of its hottest products may be too hot. we'll tell you why the silicon valley company has issued a safety warning. also, santa clara county's controversial fast food toy ban takes effect today. we'll tell you about it.
